Serving in the Military was Our Privilege

Dear Tammy,

It is because of the love of our country that we served...

It is because of what our parents, grandparents and great grandparents did in the 40s, teens and 1800s to preserve our nation that we served...

It is because of those who lived in countries run by oppressive rulers and who want to experience the freedoms that we enjoy, a reason we serve...

It is because we do not want our children and grandchildren to live in fear that we served...

and it is because of appreciative and supportive people like yourself that we served, and have not regretted a day we spent in defense of our great nation.
